Jasna is in Slovakia and said to be “one of the top freeride spots in Central Europe”. The two mountain ranges of the resort have now been connected which has opened up a whole new realm of freeride possibilities. The north side is steeper and more challenging terrain so attracts an advanced and experienced freerider, whilst the South side is wide open powder fields that spark the interest of those who are wanting to develop their off-piste skills. Jasna has been on the scene for the Freeride World Tour Qualifiers and is the venue for the CGC Jasna Adrenalin FWQ international competition.
